We are celebrating another year of outstanding GCSE results with students making exceptional progress at every level of ability.
50% of all students achieved a good pass in both English and Maths which places the school as one of the best performing non-selective school in Kent. 64% of students achieved a good pass in English and 53% a good pass in Maths. Science had brilliant success with the first year of the new, very challenging GCSE specification, with the number of students achieving at least 2 science passes nearly doubling.
Congratulations to all students including:
Mercy Horsington-White — 10 good passes with 7 at the very top grades of 7 – 9 or A-A** (including grade 9 and a distinction star)
Lani Perry – 9 good passes with 6 at the very top grades of 7 – 9 or A-A** (including grade 9 and two distinction stars)

“These are fantastic results and we are enormously proud or our students. We have brilliant staff who work so hard to ensure the students achieve the best possible grades they can but the students deserve the real praise for working so hard and for showing real resilience and determination. The new examinations are much harder than previous years but our students have risen to the challenge and we are thrilled” (Ms Greig)
“We are thrilled with the results the students have achieved. The new specifications have been an added challenge for staff and students but still King Ethelbert’s results have improved again in every measure and we are excited to be awarded a number of grade 9s alongside the many distinction stars in other subjects. A huge thank you must go to the amazing staff team for their relentless hard work in preparing students and building their confidence.” (Mrs Willis)
The record breaking GCSE examination results comes on the back of the superb IBCP sixth form results the Year 13 students achieved in July. We remain one of the highest performing non-selective schools in Kent.
